The HydroWorx 350 is the new benchmark for freestanding unweighting devices. Utilizing warm water therapy as a medium to enhance rehabilitation and performance through water’s buoyancy, resistance and hydrostatic pressure, this advanced hydrotherapy system provides the ultimate rehabilitation advantage. With a 7-inch longer treadmill belt, it accurately simulates land-based walking, retro-walking, jogging and sprinting with underwater treadmill speeds ranging from 0.1 to 10 mph. With 40% more jet power, patients can increase their conditioning, strength and flexibility.
- Water supports the body, limiting weight bearing.
- Buoyancy makes standing easier for people with weakness.
- Warmth of water allows for more pain-free exercise.
